Verdict

BURBANK has the highest rating of these having finished fourth in last month’s Neptune Investment at Cheltenham. If he runs up to that form, Nicky Henderson’s charge is probably the one to beat as he’s getting 3lb from recent winners Jimmy Breekie, Sir Antony Browne and Some Invitation and his yard won this with a short-priced favourite in 2015. The latter is the most interesting of the aforementioned trio as he represents last year’s winning connections and his only failure so far came on very soft ground. The mare Kelka only won a handicap last time and doesn’t look good enough while this may be too short for Give Me A Copper.
